My 2019 word of the year has been Breakthrough. I talked all about it back in January and just read through that post again this morning. It was a little invigorating remembering all that God had been speaking to me in those cold winter months. 

What I didn't share in that post was something God had spoken to me during a prayer time a few months earlier. It was something I was keeping close to my heart, a secret between me and...

2016 was my year on PURPOSE.

2017 was my year of PROMISE.

2018 was my year of PASSION.

(Don't you love the alliteration there? I do. It makes me happy and to be honest I wasn't even trying for it but that's how much Jesus gets me.)

I didn't plan on having a word of the year for 2019, Really I didn't. Those previous three years and three words neatly tied up a season of my life, and using them as points of focus made sense. So as 2...

*No, I will not be writing romance novels this year. Sorry if that disappoints. LOL. I'm not talking about that kind of passion.*

In 2016 I jumped on the word-for-the-year bandwagon. I had seen others do this each January for years. I had always been impressed and inspired by their "words" but had never really thought to find my own. I don't know why. Maybe it seemed daunting to try and define a whole year by one word. Maybe it...

God, I don’t understand? Why me? 

I had been a Christian for about ten years. Many women of faith had poured their hearts into me to help me grow, and it was taking way too long for my perfectionist self. For ten years, the pot had been boiling, and it was finally boiling over. I couldn’t understand why God had chosen me and poured the lives of so many spiritual women into me, all for so little return. Why would He do this? Wha...

In January I deemed 2017 my year of promise. After a lot of prayer that word was resounding in my head and heart. I felt like this would be the year I would see something happen, the harvest, if you will, of all my efforts. 

We're half way through the year and I find myself beginning to wonder. Had I misheard God about this year? Had I misheard Him about His actual promises to me and what my harvest would look like? I star...

Five years ago I told God I would do anything for His name. Of course, my definition of anything was slightly different from what He has called me to do. 

When I said anything, I meant the shallow end of the water. I wanted my feet safely and firmly touching the bottom. However, God called me into the deep waters of a calling I often do not feel ready for in the first place.

Five years ago, I told God He could have me but I made...

Live chosen. What does it mean? I’ve been asking myself that ever since I signed up to do this blog post. How hard could it be to write about daily life? Then I sat down to write and nothing came. How could I explain it? Would I come across as hypocritical? Then today happened. 

Monday morning just before six o’clock, I’m ready to hop in the shower to start the week as a teacher. I’ve had a wonderful weekend with family and a c...

*Disclaimer: Zoe is a fictional character from The Chronicle of the Three Trilogy. She is not real. But,  I believe, there is still some truth to her struggles, while fictional, that could give us insight and encouragement in our own. You may proceed. 

Some days I don’t want to be chosen anymore. It has cost me a lot. It’s painful and exhausting. I’m tired.

I know this probably isn’t what you were expecting, or wanting when...

When you move around as much as I do, you meet a lot of different people. What I've found is that I love "real" people. I'm talking about people who are not afraid to be vocal about their imperfections, people who make the rest of us feel like we're not alone in our flaws. I love these people and I love connecting them to others. While having conversations about the needs of a ministry, there are so many instances when our con...
